in thread Terminal decline?

The good parts of its API could be adopted here and even improved

Can you be specific? Maybe it could happen.

I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.

    Strangely enough, I implemented a couple of them recently for myself. :P They are not ready for prime time but I was going to post the code to run them for others. I’ll flag you when I do. It’s Ajax voting, (certain) page loads to “bypass” the POST thing in the frontend, and chat box; based on tobyink’s CSS/layout stuff.

      OK. So by "API" did you mean "UI"?

        Yes. Though to some degree no because the API strongly guides/restricts the UI. The UI is the only thing users are concerned about but the API is what makes good UI easy and robust. I implemented some UI I like in JS in spite of the 90s “API” after realizing I had done little but whine about it; and HTTP is HTTP whether there is a sane API behind the responses (POST/GET, meaningful status responses, well-behaved and modern charsets, no hidden variables picking form behavior/endpoint, JSON responses, etc) or not. :P
